Even soldiers need their sweets, and when a personal message is attached to the candy bar it makes it a hundred times sweeter. For a week in March, Harveys of Madison has been collecting Reese’s candy bars for the soldiers at Moody Air Force Base.
The Reese’s were sold for $1, and anyone who wished to donate a candy bar was also invited to write a personal message on them. The candy bars were then taken to Moody Air Force Base to be distributed to the soldiers.
Air Force recruiters Garrett D. Forehand and Regina Cooper, in cooperation with the store manager of Madison’s Harveys, Michael Bryan, brought this effort together. Harveys collected over 500 candy bars in one week.
Harveys would like to thank the community for their support in this effort and for supporting our troops.
